There is so much excitement in the air this morning! First of all it is Friday, and the sun is shining, catalog craziness is wrapping up in the office, spring is finally ready for more of a committed relationship, and the beginning of a new month brings endless opportunity!
With school winding down, don’t forget to think about your teachers this weekend, because next week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Write them a note of encouragement, thanking them for all they’ve invested in you or your children. Make a craft for them that shows them how much they are appreciated. Buy them one of our Apple a Day Fashion Beaded Lanyards to make all the other teachers jealous.
May is also Get Caught Reading Month, so once you’re done thinking about your teachers this weekend, bury your nose in a book! Get Caught Reading Month began in 1999 as a way to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read for pleasure. Exposure to language at a young age has been scientifically proven to stimulate brain growth in children, and children who have been regularly read to have a large advantage over their peers by the time they start school.
So reignite that passion for reading, whether it is the classics, chick-lit, the latest thriller, or just your favorite magazine or the sports pages. Go on, crack open a book and GET CAUGHT READING!
